5039The 2010 nominees for the Diagram Prize were announced. This prize is awarded by The Bookseller trade magazine, and celebrates books with odd titles. Unfortunately, none of our libraries have Governing Lethal Behaviour in Autonomous Robots (although that sounds like an important topic), Afterthoughts of a Worm Hunter, or Collectible Spoons of the Third Reich. You can vote online for the winner at the magazine’s homepage.

UPDATE: Crocheting Adventures With Hyperbolic Planes took home the award- full story at this link.

This story in the News-Journal appeared over the weekend to promote the Delaware Association of Environmental Education’s Child in the Wild conference on Saturday, February 27th at the historic Blue Ball Barn. The conference is for both formal and non-formal educators, and will present tools and case studies on introducing environmental concepts into classroom education, and will feature presenters from Delaware Greenways, the Seaford School District, and other educational and natural resources organizations.

Delaware Library Catalog libraries can offer a tremendous range of resources for parents on educators on this topic, including curriculum guides for all grades, primers and readers, and audiovisual material. Click here for a list of available items. A resource guide on green living is also available from the Delaware Division of Libraries. More details about the conference and a registration form are available at the Delaware Association of Environmental Education website

And remember, Delaware’s state parks are some of the greatest places to play outside! Fee season starts on March 1st this year- you can pick up an annual pass from any state park or order one online at the website.
